  • "What a wonderful week! We loved...- sleeping by the pool under the fans, - flying kites on the beach, - watching the shadows of the live oaks thought the shuttered windows, - walking to the shops for ice cream, lotion, whatever. Thanks for your thoughtfulness & warm hospitality. We want to come again"
